Whiskeytown Lake is a beautiful lake that is kept full through the summer as a part of the Sacramento Valley Project.  Just a few minutes west of Redding and a bit higher in elevation the lake is a favorite at different times of year for water skiing and sailing. Whiskeytown Falls is located within the National Park just beyond the west end of the lake.  With a good cold winter storm the snow can fall aplenty, like much of our valley areas the cold stuff doesn't tend to stay long.  The reservoir was dedicated by President Kennedy on September 28, 1963.
